I See, Said The Blind Man

By Mahons On January 10th, 2019 at 2:24 pm

We are told that President Trump will travel to Texas to be seen seeing the southern border. He is reluctant to go according to reports and is doing so at the advice of his advisors. He will meet with some unpaid border control agents. It is unclear if he will sing the Yellow Rose of Texas. Adding to his legacy of false statements is nearly certain.

He hasn’t convinced Congress or the mation of the need for his wall. And if he wanted to see an illegal alien he doesnt have to travel to Texas, some reportedly work at his club in Florida.

Via Con Dios Mr. President. Try the brisket.

REMAINERS WILL STOP AT NOTHING

By Pete Moore On January 9th, 2019 at 8:15 pm

The Speaker, John Bercow, has always prided himself on assiduously applying the rules of the House. He’s morally and politically corrupt, however he’s always been a rules man. But no longer.

Today he tore up the rules in the service of thwarting the sovereign will of the people. He balked at the counsel of House clerks who told him he was wrong, and he admitted in the House that he gave no thought to the consequences. One consequence we already know, and it’s that when trust has gone it can never be restored. Remainers tell us that we must not be angry, that we must hold our grace while we disagree (and the Establishment effectively tells us that democracy is good only when it goes their way). I say bollocks to that. A far greater man than any of them saw through that ruse –

In short, the theory that we must not be angry is the very charter of escape for all evil-doers who are strong enough to awaken anger.

– G.K. Chesterton: Daily News, August 8, 1908

We rarely do overt displays of anger in this country. It’s not the Saxon temperament. But out here, under the surface, we’re boiling. One day Bercow and his treacherous allies will find their parliament surrounded by pitchforks, and they’ll have brought it on themselves. Amid the political squalor, the rules of Parliament were the one constant path. But they’ve torn up the rules because they were inconvenient. So they cannot now call on rules.

We will not protect you. Now pay the government.

Democrat response to POTUS Trump’s speech last night regarding the need for a border wall:   No, we will not protect ordinary American citizens; we only want to protect government employees.

Democrat Party 2019:  old, rich and white…pretending to care about brown people so they can hold on to power.  Pathetic.

The Speech

The EU is just a group of bureaucrats

By Patty On January 8th, 2019 at 11:34 pm

The EU is not a nation state. The EU is just another organization, like the United Nations. The Trump Administration recently brought home this fact by downgrading the EU’s diplomatic status  in the official registry of diplomatic protocols.

From The New York Times:

Mr. Trump has been critical of multilateral institutions, and his secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, delivered a provocative speech in Brussels on Dec. 4 in which he questioned the value of multinational organizations and institutions like the United Nations and the European Union. Mr. Pompeo then asked whether the European Union was “ensuring that the interests of countries and their citizens are placed before those of bureaucrats here in Brussels.”

The next day, the European Union’s demotion from a member state to an international organization became clear at the funeral of President George Bush, when Mr. O’Sullivan’s name was not called in the expected order, dictated by diplomatic protocols. The names of diplomats who had gathered in Washington to pay their respects were spoken, as is custom, from the longest-serving to the newest ambassador, a European Union official told the German news agency Deutsche Welle. “But he was called up as the last person.”

Spare me the tears.

 

Irrational Emergency

By Mahons On January 8th, 2019 at 9:28 pm

Apparently some gambling concerns are actually taking bets on how many times the President lies tonight. It has come to this.
The wall is so central to his reason for being I can’t imagine he won’t declare a national emergency. Whether he can justify it will no doubt be a matter of continuing disagreement. Even some of the pro Wall folks would have to take pause at such a stretch of Presidential power. It should be cringe worthy.

There is a strong consensus that the border should be secure. The differences in how this is to be done are the real issue. He may not set forth a persuasive or rational argument, but he will get the ratings he has always wanted.

REMAINERS ARE NOW A SUICIDE SQUAD

By Pete Moore On January 8th, 2019 at 8:25 pm

MPs have just voted, by 303 to 296, to approve an amendment to the Finance Bill (which makes the Budget changes law), which limits the governent’s fiscal powers to manage a so-called “no deal” Brexit.

It does nothing to prevent a no-deal Brexit. It’s simply designed to tie the government’s hands in dealing with it. These MPs are telling us that it will be a disaster, so they’ll stop the Treasury from taking mitigating measures.

There is no principle in play. It’s simply Remain guerilla warfare in the interests of personal dogma (stopping Brexit) against the national interest.

They are not just anti-democrats. They are unhinged fanatics.

Background for Tonight’s address

By Patrick Van Roy On January 8th, 2019 at 1:41 pm

Tonight President Trump will address the Nation from the Oval Office.  It is believed the speech will be in regards to The Wall and the Middle East.

Here is a framing of the wall side of the debate, please pay close attention to the comments from Obama’s Head of the Border Patrol Mark Morgan who was fired by Trump. His segment starts at 2:50, but the whole 13 min. is well worth the watch.

MEANWHILE IN GERMANY

By Pete Moore On January 8th, 2019 at 1:37 pm

A murder attempt was made against a prominent politician from Germany’s moderate Alternative für Deutschland.

Frank Magnitz, 66, leader of the AfD in the northern German city, was almost beaten to death, according to the party’s federal chairman, Jörg Meuthen, who tweeted a graphic photograph of the unconscious MP with what appeared to be a deep gash to the head.

No arrests have been made, but I suspect left wing terrorists. Sadly it’s no surprise. An AfD office was bombed a couple of days ago, the latest in a series of violent acts against them. The extremists, both globalists and on the left, have been whipping up hatred against the AfD with hysterical language. In a country with a long history of left wing terrorist atrocities, the headbangers will turn violent. It’s time for the others to tone it down.

WE ARE ALL ANNA SOUBRY NOW

By Pete Moore On January 8th, 2019 at 1:24 pm

Anna Soubry, the pro-EU Tory MP, was heckled on TV yesterday. Protesters chanted that she’s a Nazi before telling her the same, to her face. Cue horrors all round among the chattering classes.

And I knew just how she felt. Many Leave voters will have. Because for two-and-a-half years we have been similarly libelled as Nazis, branded by everyone from Prince Charles to the Archbishop of Canterbury to broadsheet columnists as racist, xenophobic cretins whose self-destructive vote to leave the EU has resuscitated the ‘fascist tradition’ (in the archbishop’s words).

So we know how you feel, Ms Soubry. And we know it isn’t nice.

For the last couple of years millions of us have been – daily – called Nazis, fascists and xenophobes, for daring to democratically call for independence. All the while, the deaths of older Brexit voters voters has been celebrated. But the chattering classes had nothing to say about that. They were fine with that. MPs said nothing and the police took no interest. But now that half a dozen blokes have given Soubry the same treatment, they reach for the smelling salts.

Conservatives and patriots have been called the same things for decades. The police are taking an interest in the Soubry insults. The left had better be careful; if it’s a police matter to call someone a Nazi, there goes it’s entire debating strategy.

I don’t think they need worry. Housewives in Stoke, Welsh ex-miners and Essex beauty therapists will continue to be insulted by the great and the good and the BBC, because they enjoy it. MPs who make themselves the focus of anti-democratic campaigns to overturn the greatest act of democracy in our history will be treated differently by the law.
